Petaluma Marina

We are proud to offer this newest of boating facilities for your use and enjoyment. The waters of the Petaluma Marina are part of the Petaluma River, a channel that runs fourteen miles from the north end of Petaluma to the San Pablo Bay. The river is enjoyed for its excellent boating, fishing, and water skiing.


For safety reasons, the Yacht Club side and a portion of the north side of the Turning Basin is closed. Please do not dock in areas that are closed off.
